American Airlines 737-800 went off the end of a runway in Jamaica Tuesday night in heavy rain

Runway overruns have become the most frequent type of airline accident in recent years. Planes sometimes do go off the end of runways because they were traveling too fast or were too high when attempting to land. These may have been factors in two Southwest Airlines runway accidents, in Chicago and in Burbank, Calif.

Sometimes mechanical problems are the root cause of the accident - brakes fail, spoilers and thrust reversers that slow down a jet don't deploy. Also, fatigue has contributed to past accidents.

Investigators will examine the crew's decision to land, looking at the weather and runway conditions at the time.
